In brief: Many

If breast feeding it could be due to a developing mastitis(infection).
If just before your period it could be due to mammary dysplasia(fibrocystic breast disease). If you work out with weights a lot it could be due to a pectoralis muscle strain. Finally, it could also be the first signs of heart disease in a 40+ year old female if left sided.
